Yes, so much the better.

It will be nice somewhere in deep clarify for experts what happens with list 
iterator if the list changed.

And iterating over modifyed (if you insert/remove keys, but not when you only 
update values) dict or set really yield unexpected results (i.e. they expected 
in them undefinability). This is really not recommended.
